Entry is free and visitors will be able to see the progress of first-phase restoration work under way at Ebridge Mill Lock.
Other attractions will include boat trips along the canal, kayaks and canoes to hire, independent inshore lifeboat teams in action, Ebridge Model Boat Club, the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association, Norfolk Classic and Vintage Tractor Club, Visit www.nwdct.org for more information.
